One of the greatest Green Bay Packers of all time, Brett Favre, will be honored on Thanksgiving Day night at Lambeau Field.

By William Chase

While everyone is enjoying a couple of traditional turkey-day football games, the nightcap features one of the oldest NFL rivalries, the Chicago Bears versus the Green Bay Packers.

On top of that, the legendary No. 4 Brett Favre has his number retired and is inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

Said Favre:

It will be an incredible honor to be in Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving night with Packers fans and have my name and number placed among the greatest players in Packers history

The Packer legend, who ended on somewhat controversial terms with Packers’ fans having retired as a member of the rival Minnesota Vikings after playing two seasons for the team in 2009-2010, will officially be the toast of the town and the man of the hour Thursday night in Lambeau Field.

Favre is currently on the semi-finalist list for the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and is all but certain to be getting that call come Jan. 31.
